New Way Stationary Engines

Aim - To serve and support the New Way Stationary Engine restoration community.
There was a New Way Stationary Motor inclined to Hit and Miss. It was designed that way but intermittently it would missfire and this in the confines of the beekeepers shed fired my imagination, grabbing my senses. I just loved the sound of the New Way 3.5Hp working - likely fuelled by a too rich mixture.
With each missfire came the tell tale puff of blue smoke and via the old sawbench, the beekeeping manufacturing business was underway, alive and well. Alf was in his element. Romance, nah, hard work but Hoots the New Way went a long way in firing the imagination of times past running in the present. The present, after all, that's where life is, it's not in the past, but romancing the past, that's the present if you're living it.
The priveledge of life. Present and past is now!!! - alive.

New Way Library and Reference Resource

Library News
We have recently loaded 4 New Way Documents supplied courtesy of the Smithsonian. Some of these are quite rare and have presented in excellent condition. Like all documents in the library they are all available for Free download for non commercial use. There has also been another engine instruction added which is great news.

The Smithsonian Libraries are a great source for Trade Literature including Engine Instructions, Manufacturer Catalogs, Equipment Brochures and Machinery Brochures. We are indebted to them for supurb literature items.

With the library growing with support we have also reformatted the library listings to make it easier for you to find documents. We presently have 33 documents available including :
  • 11 Catalogs 
    • Including D18A, D18B, D20, D11, D14, D16
  • 10 Engine Instructions
    • Included recent Vertical Twins and BF /BH Single Instructions
    • Also Type "D"/"C" Verticals, 5 Engines, Jewels
  • 6 Brochures
Here is the reformatted Library Page.

Here is the BF BH Cover of the 16 Page Instruction.

We are expecting more documents soon from The Smithsonian Trade Libraries and will list them once prepared. At this point we are seeking the following instructions so they can be listed for Free Downloading:
  • New Way Horizontal Twin
    • Any or all Models 6-7, 8 and 12Hp
  • New Way Horizontal Standard - 6Hp
  • Any New Way Document not listed in the library.
If you can help us or you know someone who has one of these instructions that you can give a gentle nudge, then please do. We and others with these engines, I am sure would really appreciate being able to have a watermarked copy of an original instruction.

What's needed.
There is no need to part with your valuable original.
Just do a good quality scan each page and Email to us here at New Way Station on
You can do it one page at a time if you like.

We then clean it up and watermark it then put it up for free download.

Remember the Smithsonian with a donation:

Here's hoping and praying
Enjoy the Library's instructions and catalogs
